WELCOME TO ST MARGARET'S COMMUNITY CHURCH
We hope that you feel welcome and connected with God and your church family. We offer the community a chance to come together and worship with others. There is so much going on within the church, we believe the church is not just about Sunday but every day of the week. If you are new to the church and would like to register with us to receive regular updates, please email Sue Lynes, and she will send you a link to Church Suite. email@example.com Coming together as a community strengthens and guides us in our daily life.
Our Sunday service is 4 pm-5 pm. The style of worship is modern with bible teaching relating to our everyday life. We have a real passion to encounter God and enjoy his presence. During Covid times we are streaming LIVE on Facebook, so nobody misses out.
We hold small fellowship groups during the day and evening, getting to know each other more, and learning the bible together. If you want to be part of a small group, please email
There are children's groups each Sunday. The children stay for the first block of worship, then they go off to their fun groups. (not during lockdown)

REFURBISHMENT IS WELL UNDERWAY!
The underfloor heating, new polished concrete flooring, new toilets, including an accessible toilet, and a baby-change area are now in place.
The Cafe and kitchen are being fitted this week. The next phase will be to install children's soft-play equipment.
The refurbishment of the church building started July 2020, and is well underway and on track, however, we are running slightly low on funds and need help! And this is where you can play your part in helping create an amazing vision for our community.
A HUGE thank you to Allchurches Trust for the grant towards our work at St. Margaret's. We are so grateful to them, and to God, for their generosity!
